[jadmin] Which Jabber client for intranet?

I'm really happy with Jabber Instant 
Messenger (JIM).  From what I've seen,
it has WAY fewer bugs than any other
Windows client.

Regarding the ICQ stuff, I think the
behavior you're seeing is really a
server issue, not a client issue.
The text that goes into those boxes 
you're seeing as blank actually comes
from the Jabber server in real time.
For better or worse, that's the way
the whole Jabber gateway system was
designed to work.  So, you should
probably look into your ICQ gateway
and Jabber server configurations.

Subject: [jadmin] Which Jabber client for intranet?

Can anybody recommend a good (stable) Windows 95/98/2000/NT client which
an easy means to pre-configure the client to connect to my intranet
server? Or a reliable Windows client with source code available?

We've been testing _all_ of the various MS-Windows clients, and so far
one has exhibited rather serious bugs. I am willing to report bugs to
client's developers as I find them, but perhaps we need a new Jabber.org
discussion forum (in addition to 'client development'), a forum for
from end users on the various clients, bugs, etc.

So far, only 'JabberIM' is anything close to being stable enough for me
suggest using it for anything resembling 'production'. The client works
great for normal chat and conferencing, but I could not use JabberIM to
register for ICQ- half the time in Preferences->Services->ICQ Transport,
the labels to the left of the fields come up as blank boxes.
